As a big Star Wars and Lego Video game fan, I am super stoked about this game. Lego has always done a fantastic job of representing whatever franchise it built a game around. In my opinion the Star Wars Lego games were some of the best. Really enjoyed Lego Star Wars on the 3DS, the clone wars on my PC and the complete collection(episodes (1-6). One of the coolest announcements about this game is that there will be levels set between 6 and 7 that we have never seen before. I will be playing the demo soon and will have impressions up on the site. In the meantime here are a few more facts about the game.
Relive the Blockbuster – Blast off into a new and improved LEGO Star Wars experience that takes fans deeper into the new film than any other game, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens.
New Adventures – Experience untold tales within the Star Wars galaxy through new story levels set in the time leading up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, all with a signature LEGO twist, including Han Solo and Chewbacca’s voyage to capture the ravenous Rathtars, how the mysterious Crimson Corsair foiled the plans of the First Order, secrets behind Lor San Tekka’s journey to the Jakku Village, Poe Dameron’s daring rescue of Admiral Ackbar and more!
Original Dialogue from Film Cast – Features original dialogue from key members of the theatrical cast, providing the most authentic Star Wars for experience for players, including Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Daisy Ridley (Rey), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), John Boyega (Finn), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Max von Sydow (Lor San Tekka), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) and other top stars from the film.
Build… and Rebuild – The enhanced Multi-Builds system allows players to choose from multiple building options to solve a puzzle and advance the game in different ways. For the first time, the same pile of LEGO bricks can be used in multiple ways, with the player building and re-building different objects for different purposes.
Exciting New Blaster Battles – Players can now engage in intense Blaster Battles, seeking cover behind nearby objects and structures, which is a first for a LEGO game. Characters can then pop out from the safety of cover to fight enemies with blaster fire. Enemy fighters can now also build themselves using LEGO bricks to support their fellow Stormtroopers, taking the fight to the Resistance with the power of LEGO!
Fly Through the Galaxy Like Never Before – Experience the thrill of high-speed, action-packed flight gameplay like never before, piloting iconic vehicles (including the legendary Millennium Falcon) through arena-based battles and dogfights in space.
Variety of Characters, Vehicles & Locations – More than 200 collectible/customizable characters and 80 playable vehicles/creatures, along with five different free play environments to explore, including D’Qar, Jakku, Millennium Falcon interior, Starkiller Base and Takodana.
The game will be releasing June 28th, so right around the corner. Will have a full review shortly after.
